Hoping someone can confirm if what I am trying to do, is even possible?
Mobile providers in these parts still allows one to enter a combination of numbers, separated by (*) and (#) symbols, to quickly check data balances etc., instead of using an app.
I am sure there is a correct term for that type of communication, since it’s been around for ages – but regardless – anyway to automate this?
In Shortcuts App, I tried simply inputting the
*121*12345# as a “text” field, and then passed that on to the “call” action – but no joy. An error message pops up: “Conversion error: Call failed because Shortcuts couldn’t convert from Text to Phone number”
Can anyone think of a possible workaround?
Would be very convenient to trigger the above by voice, rather than having to remember the combination each time…
